The Poetic Apothecary

i’m tired of meeting girls
with stories like mine
or with experiences that are far worse

at first it made me feel better
like i wasn’t alone
but now it makes me angry
because it happens all the time

there were four girls that became friends
each from a different walk of life
three of them sexually assaulted
all before the age of sixteen

there were six girls in a group
bonding at a new sorority event
fun facts soon turned to hard truths
as one dug deep and told her tale
about the violence taken against her body
all in the group shed tears
for they understood well
how it feels to have a piece of your soul
stripped away

every time i meet a new girl
i know
by looking in her eyes
if there are experiences we share
too painful to say out loud

i’m not alone…
